Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

The Swan
By Heidi Stephenson

In the flooded field, a streak of angel-white
Fanned wide, strong, protective;
Guarding her eggs against the rising swell.

She is sure in her love,
Trusting that Grace will favour Life;
Over the hungry Dart.

The burst banks of the river bleed towards her,
A torrent of Biblical Death;
But she is peaceful.

İHeidi Stephenson, August 2014
